#1967 Quota discrepancy for "dmalcolm" on people1.fedoraproject.org

I keep running into "Disk quota exceeded" messages when uploading content to fedorapeople.org
[david@brick coding]$ scp -r libpython.git/ dmalcolm@fedorapeople.org:public_git/

scp: public_git//libpython.git/info: Disk quota exceeded

According to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/fedorapeople.org "Each Fedora contributor has 150 MiB of quota-controlled space."

Running "du" thus, it looks to me that I'm using approximately 61M (the bulk of these are the 10M src.rpms from the python3 package review).
[dmalcolm@people1 ~]$ du -h ~ | tail
736K /home/fedora/dmalcolm/public_git/check-cpython.git/objects
928K /home/fedora/dmalcolm/public_git/check-cpython.git
3.6M /home/fedora/dmalcolm/public_git
28K /home/fedora/dmalcolm/public_html/rpmlint
564K /home/fedora/dmalcolm/public_html/python3-packaging/python3-setuptools

58M /home/fedora/dmalcolm/public_html
16K /home/fedora/dmalcolm/.ssh
61M /home/fedora/dmalcolm
and the raw number of files doesn't seem outrageous:
[dmalcolm@people1 ~]$ find | wc -l

However, from my reading of "quota", my quota's going somewhere
[dmalcolm@people1 ~]$ quota
Disk quotas for user dmalcolm (uid 102572):
Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace
149996 150000 150000 619 0 0

Any ideas where the quota is going? Sorry for my lack of sysadmin-fu here.

I can delete the old src rpms from completed package reviews to free up space, but I'm concerned about the discrepancy here (150MB vs 61MB)

You have an old deleted dir still in the backup directory. We don't advertise this much but it's still owned by you:


Your account must have gone inactive at some point.

Ah thanks; I think I manually requested that backup from one of the devel machines (from the Testopia prototyping saga), then proceeded to forget about it. PEBKAC to some extent, sorry.

FWIW there's a remote chance that I may need that backed-up data some day; is it likely to stay around?

You can keep it there for as long as you want but it's counting against your quota. We don't have a full policy on how long it stays there but if we run out of disk space, removing old backups is probably the first place we'll look to get rid of content. If you want to keep it you should probably move it to your home dir.

I'm going to go ahead and close this ticket, please re-open it if you're not satisfied but the discrepancy is all in the backup.
